I’m so excited for spring, not because the snow is melting (I could live with snow year-round) but because MORE DAYLIGHT HOURS! To celebrate, I’ve planned out a few promos to run over the brighter months. This month? GET WET MINI SESSIONS! These will be perfect for anyone who’s been thinking about doing a boudoir session, but doesn’t think they’re fully comfortable getting naked in front of a stranger yet.
Bring your favourite tee or tank, or wear one of the studio ones. You’ll get sprayed down and we’ll shoot some of my favourite poses! After you’ve dried off we’ll go through your images so you can choose your favourites! Then within two weeks you’ll be sent the final edited images. I’ll be running these on Friday March 30 and Saturday March 31 for only $99.
- 30 minute session, one WET outfit
- Complete posing direction from Jenna
- 5 edited digital images
You’ll be responsible for:
- makeup & hair (wet hair totally acceptable!)
- bringing your favourite tee, tank and/or other negligee (i’ve got a few options in studio if you’re stuck)
Limited availability, email me or DM me on instagram to choose your time. Sessions will take place at my home studio in Vernon, BC. Payment required in full to confirm your session. Sorry these sessions are non-refundable, and can’t be rescheduled. Five edited digital images are included, you’ll have the option to purchase more if you’d like.
Family and friends have come and gone, the only thing left separating me from going back to work is NYE. Recovering from a concussion has made this one of the most sober holidays in recent memory.. and it’s also given me a head start in reflecting on this past year.
My goals for 2017 included focusing on the authenticity of my work. Favouring intrinsic rewards over extrinsic success and recognition. These images have been selected as ones that I feel are progressing towards those goals. They’re images that I love, and that I’m proud of.
I feel slightly dispirited thinking about 2017, but there’s nothing glaring-ly obvious as to why it’s sitting that way in my mind. The JMY business didn’t land where I had expected it to at this time last year. In part because I was focusing on other things: family relationships, and our new house and renovation. But also because I’ve had a shift in mindset. The idea of “quitting my day job” is something I was once enthralled by. It’s something that an entire industry has been created around: helping new photographers go pro. I’ve realized that the business of photography drains me, and leaves me with nothing to give to my family. But I love creating images for clients. Recognizing this, I’ve laid the ground work in the past 6 months to distance myself and JMY from this idea, and return to something simpler.
I’ve got some huge personal endeavours lined up for 2018, and no doubt JMY has a place in there. My focus will be working with a smaller number of clients, to whom a boudoir session is a big deal for. And a second focus will be creating printed images and not just files sitting on a computer awaiting obsolescence.
Thanks for reading through the mucky stuff, now on to the photos! Happy New Year everyone!!
We started shooting at about 10 in the morning and I joked that I had somewhere to be at 2. Fast-forward to me racing out the door 4 hours later. This was my 4th time shooting with Lianne, and it shows! She’s so comfortable in front of the camera and so trusting of my direction that it’s effortless. I love these images that came out of this session so much that it’s inspired a new project that I’m planning to launch next week. #staytuned Enjoy the set!
